The Tendai Biti led People’s Democratic Party has urged Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa to stop using blatant lies to cover up problems arising from mismanagement. This comes after Vice President Mnangagwa said that financial institutions were sitting on $9 billion dollars due to a lack of viable projects.
Speaking on Tuesday, party spokesperson Jacob Mafume said:
The obligation to be responsible is even bigger for a deputy president, hallucination becomes very much unacceptable.
The people of Zimbabwe are now fed up of the deputy president’s misfiring, his lies and misconceptions around command agriculture, his attempt to violate the constitution in the appointment of the Chief Justice among other things.
The PDP is however aware that hallucinations meant to mislead the Zimbabwean people are not new in Zanu PF. The Zanu PF manifesto is exhibit A to that effect they promised to create over two million jobs instead half a million people have lost their job.
